    Windows phone operating system is awesome smooth fast but it lack for a few apps and that's not a problem amazing camera and display the one thing that upset me is when listening to music on headphones sounds low and there is no bass I tried few other headphones still get the same sound quality which I don't like so is there an app that equalize the sound for better music experience. On headphones please help or I might switch back to htc.

    Its because of silly WP music App. Its compleely broken after 8.1 upgrade. And unfortunately MS is unable to Fix this. But Great music apps are on the way. MS has opened Root access to WP music system. So developers have full acces to unlimited possibilities now. Things which happened never happened before, you can expect them to happen now. Soon you will see an app 100% Better than Wp Music.

    ^^ what does the sound quality have to do with the Xbox music app being broken? The UX is messed up but the sound quality isn't.

    @op: There's already an equalizer built into Lumia phones, you can find it under settings >> audio. If it's currently missing then download it from this link:

    What headphones are you using?

    Could be an impedance problem.

    The phone does seem to have a pretty low output signal. If I plug it into my sound system at home I have to put the phone's volume on max and then turn up the voulme on the sound system to boost further. I have to do the same when I use it in my car via bluetooth. If might be intentional as they seem to worried about people blowing out their ears.

    You should put any external device volume at max, if connected to a receiver, anyways.

    1. Just cause that's the proper way to do it. Why would you cut the signal power before it even gets amplified? It just makes your stereo work harder to get back to "normal" levels, which could even add noise to the signal.

    2. It only had to happen to me once. I had my phone left at ~15/30 volume and the phone had some bugs and would flake out when the 3.5mm jack was in use. Well, the volume adjusted itself to 30/30 and needless to say, that can cause some issue or damage stereo equipment real quick. Now that is a weird bug, but you could accidentally hit your volume or a friend could. It wise to set it at max for protection alone.

    Yes that's true generally, you eliminate hiss and other system noise that way. Still, it seems like you have to crank it that much more with this phone.
